Mace was set up in 1974 as a self help
housing association to house 'creative' individuals and homeless
people. It was set up by graduate students from University College
and was the original idea of Tom Goodman who was then the secretary
of ACME Housing Association. ACME provided housing and studio
space for artists. MACE is an anagram of ACME.
